Can you help me track down this Winnie The Pooh quote?

This is driving me crazy. This quote is all over the internet attributed to AA Milne “If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. you are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. but the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. i'll always be with you.”. But I can't find it in any original Winnie The Pooh book. Can anyone help me track it down?

I don't have a copy to hand but if it is Winnie the Pooh (AA Milne wrote at least one other book too) it sounds like it's right at the end when Christopher Robin goes off to school

Sorry thats not right is it?! Don't pay any attention to me!

Thanks everyone. Dh has just done some googling and suggested that it's from Pooh's Grand Adventure: The Search for Christopher Robin which is a film from the late 1990s that wasn't really based on any of the books. But surely it wouldn't be attributed to AA Milne if that was the case - or am I being naieve?!

I have old copy I got given in 1997 it's not in there but is in the Disney most grand adventure book which I also have

It's Disney, not AA Milne.

Apparently its not A A Milne at all. I've just found the exact same thing. Its completely made up!

It's not even in the same style as the books.

I never did like Disney Pooh.

Thanks all - yes, Disney it is. I'm APPALLED at the internet for this misinformation! But mostly I'm appalled for the poor person who did actually write it and gets no credit! Thanks for trying to find it for me.

a very big bit of me wants to quote the actual bit from the end when CR is going off to school, just to see how many of you can be reduced to tears..! I am actually filling up now.

<whispers 'even when I am a hundred..?'>

Off to find that bit now MrsWooster...

Definitely not A A Milne. I hate the Disney-fying of Pooh! (And don't even get me started on that awful Disney Peter Pan) angry
